Publisher's Summary

In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy listen from best-selling author Abbi Glines.

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless - and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.

Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out.....

    "Story gets a B+ but the presentation..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator for one thing. It threw me off the story. Now if I just focus on the story it's rather...basic. The main character, Sadie, is interesting and strong but the others are rather dimensional. The dialog is also a bit shallow but I didn't expect too much. Go into this with low expectations and it will be a good read.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something more fantasy/sci-fi I think...maybe.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Okay so I wanted to write a review just because of the performances. Kirby Heyborne is a bit apathetic and dry, when he tries to put on a southern accent...well I've heard better but also not the WORST ever.
    Shayna Thibodeaux is really was the biggest obstacle for me. She does this William Shatner-esque pausing narration that is very annoying. I've been through a lot of audio books and have found what I like in a narrator and what I don't like. Shayna sounds like she's reading from the page and performing, almost forcing it, rather than BEING the character and living the words.
    Now don't get me wrong, someone will love the way Thibodeaux and Heyborne narrate but it just really isn't my thing.

    "MADE ME WANT TO SAY AWWWW!"

    Abbi Glines knows how to give good teen angst! This was a really sweet story, and very much akin to an "After School Special". I'm a fan of Glines' Rosemary Beach series, and so far, Sea Breeze is definitely comparable. My biggest issue is with the male narrator...Ugh, not a great choice. Narrator aside, it was well written, and the overall story was good enough to make me explore the remainder of the series, teen drama and all!

    "Sweet but missede something in the story"

    A classic story about a poor girl falling in love and getting the rich and famous guy. Some parts are just to obvious. It was sweet but something is missing in the story - perhaps some details about the past and/or details connecting the story together. The narrating is outstanding though.

    "Breathe"

    Breathe is an excellent YA novel. Both narrators were very good and sounded like the age of main characters.

    Jax is a superstar rockstar who likes to get away from his fans etc., and spends his summer on an island in Alabama when he meets one of his housemaid,17 year old Sadie, who is less than impressed with the rockstar.

    As time goes by Sadie gets to know the true Jax, that even Jax's younger brother notices the positive chance.

    This novel shows again the lack of privacy is given for the price of fame. It sad that if someone is sick or injured fame does not protect them as the laws protect the lay persons.

    "Breathe is the start of an epic series!"

    I've listened to this series several times, I love the writing! Abbi Glines is one of my favorite authors.
    Jax and Sadie are great characters to start a series with. Everyone loves the idea of being able to snag a rock star, even if you are just the maid :)
    Sadie is the best female lead, no one could ever hate her. She is the perfect character to snag the hot unobtainable rocker.
    Add this one to your cart, and get ready to clear your schedule to finish the series as well!

    "First Audio book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Breathe to be better than the print version?

    I have to say I prefer to read a book rather than listen to it only because the voices I imagine in my head aren't the ones in the audio book~ but that is no fault of anyones. I think Jax's voice wasn't manly enough. I liked Sadies voice just fine though.


    What three words best describe Kirby Heyborne and Shayna Thibodeaux ’s voice?

    Kirby Heyborne- young, smooth, green
    Shayna Thibodeaux - young, innocent, friendly

    "Super easy read"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Abbi Glines again?

    yes


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne and Shayna Thibodeaux ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This performance was one of the best I have heard from Kirby as compared to other books by this writer were he got on my nerves......Shayna done wonderful as always!


    Any additional comments?

    Lucky for me I read this series out of order (backwards) if I would not have I more then likely would of stopped after this book. It just didn't grip me and hold me like the other books in this series. The love between the two made me want to roll my eyes ( exp. some of the mushy stuff they would say to each other) and they feel in love WAY too fast! There was a good story in there but felt booged down under the confessions of their feelings. Still an okay book better ones to come in the series so please don't stop with this one. And if you truly want to skip over this one that can be done b/c you will see these two in other books and learn their story with out all the mushy gushiness of it all.

    "Awful Technology"

    Audio keeps stopping. Almost impossible to read and listen at the same time. Do not recommend.
